Would a ticking that gets louder and faster as you accelerate be the lifters? I checked in one of the manuals (from pep boys) and it said a ticking could be many things including a pinhole on/in about three things (including the piston) or it could be the piston hitting, and about 6 other things. Also, what do you make of the oil pressure spiking up (to off the guage) when idling and driving. It's only at normal pressure about half the time. I need a new Ideler motor (likes to rev and fall between 500-1000 RPM in neutral) and it will spike and fall alot as it does this.

Bad Oil Leak with a Tick

I've had some what of an oil leak with this jeep since I got it 10 yrs ago. Just recently the oil leak looked like it was coming from a seal on the oil pan. Now I hear a tick and the oil is dripping a lot more. I think it might be coming from up high because it's dripping on the exhaust pipe and burning off. There is oil everywhere underneath. Any thoughts on this guys? Thanks
